Elada Checkerspot
Texola elada

Observation date: November 28, 2013
Submitted by: Curculio
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found on coral vine, though not nectaring. A month before there were many on this plant which brings in many bees, especially Ceratina, as well as other butterflies. The spot had frost in the morning based on what the owner told me. Its relative size can be determined by comparing with the flowers.
